Fearing God is wisdom

Bezalel // 7:12 PM // ,
Here's the intro: 
So I created the wallpaper below a while back and used the Bible verse, Proverbs 1:7 (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and understanding) as the Bible verse for it.


Te funny thing is, I love this verse so much and I thought I knew what it means, but God just told me the actual meaning: Prepare to get convicted; Yes, I will convict even myself under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but fools despise wisdom and understanding.
It means simply: Those who fear the Lord are wise, but if you do not fear God, you think and consider wisdom and understanding to be useless and look down on it. If you do not fear God, you are not wise and don't understand what's important. Harsh but true statement.


Now all of you (including me) who are Christians are probably thinking, "Nah, that doesn't apply to me; I'm saved, I love Jesus, I fear God...". This thought is good if you actually are trying and fighting the good fight of faith. If you are lukewarm or cold, this thought will lead you to hell. Remember: The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


John 14:15 says: "If you love me, keep my commandments".
And what does Luke 10:16 say? "He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me."
See the connection?


Each and every human being who is able to read this has sinned against God... basically broken God's commandments, to say the least. We have all committed adultery and cheated on God by having idols in our lives, and also via our lustful thoughts, we have all lied before, and stolen... to name a few, so we all don't keep God's commands.


But Jesus told us to keep God's commandments, and that if we don't listen to Him, we reject God who sent Him. 
The question now is: Is it possible for you to live in a holy fear of God, yet reject Him?No. Nope. Nah ah. Impossible.


With all our baggage and garbage, thanks be to God for sending Jesus to die for our sins, once and for all. Praise be to His awesome, amazing and glorious name.
Now whenever we sin and ask God to forgive us, He does and forgets our sin. #NewSlate
So we imperfect unholy children can now be perfect and Holy in God's sight when we have Jesus living in us.


Whether Christian or not, when we sin, it means we don't fear God, but when we obey God and keep His commands, we fear God, and are therefore wise and have understanding.


I pray that God reveals Himself to you and I intimately, and shows us His amazing grace, love and holiness to break our hearts when we sin against Him. Thank You God for always watching and keeping us. We love You. Amen.
